A dramatic bill to roll back the power of the State and abolish unnecessary laws was at the centre of the Government’s legislative programme today.
The Freedom (Great Repeal) Bill sets out ambitious plans to restore freedoms and civil liberties lost in recent years.
The coalition administration has DNA retention, identity cards, anti-terror laws, databases and the use of CCTV in its sights.

At its heart are pledges by senior ministers to “reduce the weight of government imposition” on citizens through laws and Whitehall policy.
